We will undoubtedly see a teaser for Solo in at least the next couple of weeks (I hope) and so, in anticipation for the new Star Wars film, here are the things I hope to see in the teaser that’ll hopefully get me a tad bit excited to see this movie.
Chewbacca will undoubtedly be a major part of the Solo movie considering he’s been Han’s friend for so many long years and what would be more exciting than seeing the iconic Wookie grace the teaser with at least one fantastic Wookie cry? This movie will probably showcase how the charming smuggler and hairy alien became inseparable buddies and I can’t wait to see Han’s reaction when he first meets Chewie. I bet it’ll be one of the highlights of the film for me.
2. Lando Calrissian
Another iconic Star Wars character that will be in this movie will be Lando Calrissean and that’s exciting. He wasn’t a major character in either The Empire Strikes Back or Return of the Jedi but he placed his stamp on the trilogy by being the only person of color in those three movies and having such an unforgettable personality that he became an instant fan favorite. Now Donald Glover, writer, creator, and actor in the hit FX series, Atlanta, is going to replace Billy Dee Williams as the smooth smuggler and I’m very skeptical.
Billy Dee Williams’ performance as Lando was impeccable and is going to be very difficult to replicate. Maybe one or two shots of Donald Glover’s version of Lando in the teaser will relieve me of my worries. Like maybe they could show a quick shot of him piloting the Millenium Falcon. That would be very exciting. All in all, I’m just hoping he doesn’t look corny.
